About a year ago, as I was putting Jake to bed one night after he lost a tooth, he informed me that he thought I was the tooth fairy. He was only 6! How could he already know that! I, of course, overreacted and said “every time you say something like that, a fairy drops dead! Now clap your hands and say ‘I do believe in fairies!'” Perhaps some would say that wasn’t my best parenting moment, but I’m trying to hold onto my baby as long as I can!
Believing in fairies finally paid off, as I just received a visit from the Fairy Hobmother, who apparently resides in a tumbler dryer of some sort. No one would ever think to look for a fairy there! Plus, it has to be much warmer in there than in the forests around my house right now. We’re having a lovely surprise snow storm.
The Fairy Hobmother popped by my site, liked what he saw, and graced me with a $50 Amazon Gift Card, which I’ll probably spend on my non-believer son. Maybe then he’ll start believing in fairies again! I don’t get it, though, the kid believes in creepers, some guy named Herovine, and Ender Dragons (which, for the longest time, I though he was saying Endodragon, and thought perhaps it was a mythical beast with an endocrine problem), so why not fairies?
Do you want a visit from the Fairy Hobmother? Leave a comment below enticing him to come visit your site (be sure to leave your link too!). Think of it as the virtual equivalent of leaving out bread and milk. Then keep an eye on your email, because it took a good two weeks for me to get one after leaving a comment on Grandma Juice’s post, so if you don’t hear right away, don’t give up hope.
>Note- I am receiving a $50 Amazon Gift Card to spread the word about the Fairy Hobmother and his residence, Appliances Online. This in no way affects my opinion regarding fairies, I’ve always believed in them and always thought they were pretty awesome.
I would love to have a visit from the Fairy Hobmother! My daughter insists that fairies exist and even has a tiny fairy bed on her nightstand!
Lately my toddler has been talking about the tooth fairy. She’s 2! lol she seems okay about it so far…wondering how this will play out when she starts losing teeth.
Ha! Love it – he resides in a Tumble Dryer you say?
I think this will definitely get your son to believing again! 😉
I believe in fairies- I do! Posts like this make me want to clap for Tinkerbell. Is that weird?
I can imagine the slight drama as you clap with your love to renew fairy dreams 🙂
Such a fun post!
Thanks for sharing.
How fun! I certainly believe in Fairies! The Fairy Hobmother is welcome at Minding Your Matters at any time!
Sounds fun! I’d love a visit from the Fairy Hobmother!!!
With a name like Tyrneathem… which means “Children of the Dragons”… it should be obvious that we believe these “mythical” beings exist. They are around us every day in our home! Fairies, unicorns, dragons, and all would be welcomed with open arms at our little place on the web: http://www.tyrneathem.com. A $50 gift card would be put to great use toward clothing the little Prince or buying yet another educational toy. 😉
I would love a visit from the Fairy Hobmother!! Fairies make life fun!
